Hi dk58198,

Glad to help.

On your old computer:

  1. Goto C:\Program Files\MetaTrader\experts
    Copy the indictor and templates folder

  2. Paste these onto a USB drive

On your new computer:

  1. Download and install MT4
  2. Insert your USB drive into your new computer and copy the the indicator and templates folders
  3. Paste the Indictor and templates folders into the following location:
    C:\Program Files\MetaTrader\experts

I’d advise copy/pasting the complete ‘experts’ folder (with all subfolders), as well as folders ‘config’, ‘templates’, and ‘profiles’; when pasting it into the MT4 on your new computer, you’ll be prompted to specify what action you want to take: choose ‘copy & replace all’.
This should ensure all your settings/profiles/templates as well as EAs, indicators, and scripts will be available.


it’s really easy. what i’ll do in your case is i simply copy the whole mt4 folder (c:\program files\mt4-or-whatever-u-call-it) and paste it anywhere in your new computer. once copied over, look for the terminal.exe file, that’s what you will double click to get your mt4 running again.
